New Power System for my Piper Cub J-3!

Hello everyone,

I just recently purchased a Great Planes Cub Parkflyer. It's a beautiful plane.

I have flown it already 3 times in the last 2 days.

It's Set-Up is a 280 Geared Motor with a 5nano ESC and a EFlite 7.4 650 mah Li-Po battery.

It flys nice and slow but it's climbing lacks.

I'm looking to improve on it's motor system not for speed, but for climbing power.

I like how this Brushless Motor from E-Flite Will upgrade the power system as it recommends.

The light weight is also what i like and to compliment it would be a 20 Amp ESC.

I am concerned though with mounting. The Piper Cub does not have much room for the Cowling to fit on, and I hope this motor would allow for it to be fitted around it and maintain the classic look.

This my plane and it's Power system. The PLane weight about 15.9 oz.
